R Dataset / Package MASS / shuttle


On this R-data statistics page, you will find information about the shuttle data set which pertains to Space Shuttle Autolander Problem. The shuttle data set is found in the MASS R package. You can load the shuttle data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("shuttle"). This will load the data into a variable called shuttle. If R says the shuttle data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("MASS") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the shuttle R data set. The size of this file is about 11,795 bytes.
